Sanibel is a very quiet and relaxing place. Couples and young families looking for a fun, relaxed vacation on the beach will love it. If you're looking to stay out late and party, I would say you'd be better suited looking elsewhere.

I went in an off season and it was nice and quiet. I probably wouldn’t visit durning the season because it would be to crowded for me.

A nice island to visit but not a lot there. Also, beware that there is a $6 toll to get on the island and parking at any public beach on the island is $5/hour. Good restaurants, reasonably priced. Miles of nice bike trails. Lots of little shops.
